50 Shades of Grey

Okay so this blog post has nothing to do with the recent obsession of women with that book series 50 Shades of Grey.  In fact I have never read any of the books and don't plan on doing so ever.  But I do have to confess a big obsession of obsession with the COLOR grey.  I just cannot get enough of it.  It is the perfect neutral.  It can be cool, it can be warm, it can have undertones of pretty much every color.  It makes brightly colored decor pop.  So naturally this obsession has shown up in my house frequently.

My dining room is painted with a moody grey called City Storm by Valspar.  It makes my dining look elegant and modern.  Just this week, I purchased a tile for my kitchen back splash that is of course grey.  I think it will look awesome with a white grout and the pattern ties in nicely with the stencil pattern on the dining room walls.
I picked out a beautiful grey with green undertones for our bedroom called Washboard by Ralph Lauren.

And I have just finished painting the guest bed room a beautiful warm grey called Sparrow from Behr.  I think it looks beautiful with the Tiffany blue damask bedspread I have on the guest bed.  Now I just need some more furniture for the room because currently it is very bare.

Phew...I feel so much better now that I have made that confession to all of you.  It isn't a bad thing to be obsessed with right?;)
